What is your opinion on this? Basically, I need to increase speed and control, but I'm not sure of the best way of doing it. I would eventually like to get up to extreme metal speeds, at 200+ bpm, plus broken double bass patterns as in Lamb of God and Meshuggah. I know this can take months, years, etc., to get up to, but I want to at least get on the right track for it. Thanks for any and all help
I'm not anywhere near Derek's skills but something I heard always stuck with me: You're only as fast as your slowest foot.
